NOTD: Can You Feel The Love

Hey lovelies! I thought I'd share with you my latest attempt at nail art, inspired by Valentine's Day and one of Grace Kingsley's nail art posts. I haven't had time to post it until now as this weekend I became an auntie! I'm off to the hospital shortly, so I best get on with the post!


For this NOTD I used a Color Club nail varnish called Get A Clue from the Alter Ego collection for the base coat. For the hearts I used my white Models Own nail art pen and Color Club Warhol from the Poptastic collection, which I applied using a dotting tool. I won the Color Club varnishes in a giveaway last year. It's an American brand, but their varnishes can be picked up online over here for about £3.00 each. 

While my nail art seems to be getting better, my actual nail varnish application seems to be getting worse! I've noticed with the second coat I don't seem to apply quite to the edge of my nail, so I'm left with a ridge. I think I'm just too impatient sometimes.

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day and a great weekend! 

Let me know what nail art you've been loving recently? I'd love some ideas for my next one!

  4. Cute nails!! I did some similar with heart prints on every nail but I love the way you've used it as more of an accent on two nails...definitely going to do that next time!

    1. I was going to hearts on every nail but I just didn't have time, but I do like it on just the two nails as well xx

  5. I am terrible at doing my nails, they seem to look ok to me until I take a close-up macro shot of them and their true colours are revealed, haha. I really don't know how some people manage to do such perfect manicures.
